“Name it and Claim it;” The Struggle for Folk Art

May 9, 2018
2:00 PM

Curator and Collector Michael Hall explores American Folk Art in terms of the modernist assumption that society can stamp its own artistic values on almost any kind of object. Hall focuses on the ways in which this assumption has continually evolved to reshape collector and museum views of the “innocent,” “raw,” and “original” objects popularly categorized as folk and outsider art. Cost of this program is $20 for nonmembers (includes general admission) and $5 for members.
